Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin welcomed the letter of resignation that Kadima MK Avi Dichter handed him on Tuesday, in order to accept the position of Home Front Defense Minister.

At the request of Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Dichter will replace outgoing Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna’i, who will leave next week for Beijing to be Israel’s next ambassador to China.

"The people of Israel need you and are counting on you," Rivlin told Dichter.

"You have already filled so many roles and in all of them you acted for the good of the state of Israel, and you did each job as well as you could. Today too, we need your help, and I'm glad that you accepted the request, and agreed to take upon yourself a role that carry's such responsibility."
